House of Fools (2003)
Critic Consensus: House of Fools has a potentially intriguing fact-based story to tell, but an insensitive approach to depicting mental illness undermines its effectiveness.

Critic Reviews for House of Fools
Vysotsky projects an essential sunniness that helps keep the film from turning maudlin.
It may be based on a true story, but another filmmaker told it before -- and better.
It ultimately feels like a folly that sounded great in the filmmaker's head, so great that he had to be put on screen, where it flounders around with no small degree of embarrassment.
The use of Bryan Adams as the madwoman's imagined paramour is indicative of just how mediocre this movie is.
There's not much to Konchalovsky's tale ... but it's often beautifully told; a gentle fantasy of a harsh time.
Audience Reviews for House of Fools
A Russian docu-drama that's intriguing for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the BEAUTIFUL and talented Yuliya Vysotskaya. Plus, it's a true story. And it's got Bryan Adams (yes, THAT Bryan Adams!).
I don't understand the naysayers reviewing this film. It is quite the interesting slice of life and who would expect...Bryan Adams playing a cameo in a Russian film?
